How to stop Kylian Mbappé? This is the question that all Ligue 1 defenders must ask themselves. Author of a new double, this Sunday evening, at the end of the 36th day of Ligue 1, the Parisian striker has indeed shown the way and allowed his people to get closer inexorably to the title. More than his 27th and 28th achievements in the league, allowing him to take the lead in the scorer rankings alone ahead of Alexandre Lacazette, the Bondynois has above all – once is not custom – distinguished himself from a group that is far too irregular.
Kylian Mbappé displays his supremacy!
Aligned alongside Lionel Messi and Hugo Ekitike in the 3-4-3 drawn by Christophe Galtier, the former Monegasque, logically elected man of the match by our editorial staff, thus made his leadership speak from the start of this meeting. Barely the debates launched, the top scorer in the history of the Parisian club (211 achievements) conditioned the supporters of Auxerre, however boiling despite the sporting context of AJA, always at the gates of relegation. Served by Fabian Ruiz, Mbappé made a supersonic sequence to play Gauthier Hein and shoot Andrei Radu (0-1, 6th).
Launched, the one who sees his contract run until June 2025 in the French capital struck a few seconds later. Taking advantage of the clever body feint of Hugo Ekitike, the French international (67 caps, 38 goals) offered the 16th assist of the season to Lionel Messi by resuming perfectly in the first intention (0-2, 8th). Stunned, Christophe Pelissier’s men even bordered on correctional in stride but Mbappé, again, saw his return to Ekitike narrowly countered by Raveloson (11th). In all the good moves offensively, KM7 turned, moreover, into a passer. From a strong cross at ground level, he even thought of releasing Ekitike but the latter completely missed his recovery (42nd). Danger number of the Parisian attack, not to say the only real danger, Mbappé still brought his liveliness to the return of the locker room.
PSG in his footsteps…
In the storm and while the reigning French champions fell back into their traps, the Ile-de-France striker called on Radu (58th). In vain. Once again unlucky in the final moments, the number 7 of the Red and Blue just missed the hat-trick but his goal was finally disallowed for an offside position (90 + 3rd). Whatever. It is still thanks to him that Paris wins. He is still the hero of the evening. It’s always him. If this habit obviously relieves the troops of Christophe Galtier and bluffs all the observers, it points despite everything to the lack of relay within this formation. Invisible throughout the evening – except for a few breakthroughs at the start of the match – Lionel Messi is the perfect illustration of this. Present at a press conference, Christophe Galtier also regretted this lack of collective control.
“I remember the victory which leaves little hope for Lens to come and get us. We have two games left and we have to be very serious. We need to be more consistent. This match reminds me of Angers (2-1), with a very good first period, a more painful second. Whereas on the last two, we had been good at the start of each start. There, it made the match difficult for us. We are six points ahead. We will have a difficult match in Strasbourg, I hope that we will have the happiness of winning it and celebrating that on the last match with our supporters at the Parc.. While waiting to (re)find harmony, the Parisian technician knows, whatever the case, that he can count on his lethal weapon, now the second French player to have scored the most goals (51) over a season (top 5 European + selection A), behind Just Fontaine (53) during the 1957/1958 season and tied with Philippe Gondet (1965/1966)…
